Favorite Pictures from January

Right in the first week of January, the apple of my eye met with a small accident. My daughter Amaira fell from a height and had to undergo stitches. For almost the whole January, she had to be taken care of and tended to. With God’s grace she is better now. January hence has a fewer pictures from my side to share.

In various bids to keep Amaira entertained and positively involved, I had to constantly churn up ideas to keep her mind off the “hurt” (she says “haat”) so that she doesn’t tug on her bandage and pull it off. Thankfully I had bought this book. It has her name with the exact spelling published on the cover ! It is a regular children’s book published by a renowned publisher much before she was born ! Back in October / Nov last year – happened to spot this and many others in the series – bought them all in a jiffy.

This one’s rather unique. It is my aunt actually, but I had to crop her face for her privacy. She was visiting a relative and probably someone offered her pineapple juice like that 🙂 Maybe some juice bars should take notice – novelty sells !!

Where there is a will – there is a way ! And we know a way to make non flowering plants flower. Just dig the flowers in ! Simple 🙂 One from the many (many) projects to keep the munchkin involved.

This one is of a Quartz Crystal. Little did I ever know that there is actually a goldmine of naturally occurring crystals just a stone’s throwaway from where my in-laws live. My father in law knew I value such things a lot – and especially since they have so many healing and metaphysical properties. This image is of one of my father in laws friends who owns such a quarry – he is holding one of the very many crystals that are dug out.

Michelle Obama is hugging Barack Obama after his final speech as the President. He spoke in Chicago, where in 1996 he was elected as senator and started his political career. I can keep looking at this image and cant even imagine the wave of emotions that may have been running through the audience and especially the best couple I may have known. They have both set such a high standard that they are only worth emulating.

To end January and invite February – here is something for the Vibrant youthful and vivid Aquarians. Available in 3 colors – Aquarius Journals make pretty handy gifts.

Ending with a little Facebook wisdom that I downloaded in January

  2. I really love this post. First of all, I agree with you about the pineapple: the bars should think about serving the pineapple juices like that! Though I wouldn’t mind if they would sell it only from the pineapple itself 🙂

    About the Obamas… I must agree with you as well! It’s so nice that they love each others so much! I would love to have a husband like that. Unfortunately a famous man can get a lot of women, and sadly they know this very well and live with this advantage. 😦
